When implanted in a person's wrist, a TiMER counts down to the day the wearer finds true love. But Oona O'Leary faces the rare dilemma of a blank TiMER. Her soul mate - whoever and wherever he is - has yet to have a TiMER implanted. Staring down the barrel of thirty and tired of waiting for her would-be life partner to get off the dime, Oona breaks her own rules and falls for Mikey, a charming and inappropriately young supermarket clerk with a countdown of four months. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Just like with other technologies such as cell phones, different versions of the TiMER can be seen throughout the film. Oona and Steph's TiMERs are boxier and simply beep, while newer versions like their brother Jesse's are smaller and come in different colors and play a more melodic tune. See more »


When Ooona and Mikey are in the kitchen, at the end of the movie, she lays her head on his right shoulder. But when she wants to leave, her head lays on his left shoulder. See more »

I'm a bit surprised by the harsh reviews on here. I consider my tastes in movies to be rather picky, so for me to say a rom com is 9 out of 10 stars is rare to say the least. I loved the concept and I thought it was executed extremely well. It asked and answered a lot of "what if" questions without going over the top, managing to stay grounded in it's characters. I appreciated the ending, not too cynical or sappy, just very well written and acted. Sure more questions could have been explored, but I appreciate that they left a lot of strings untied just to keep the focus on the main plot. It easily could have gotten off course, but the story remained tight, witty and empathetic. I 100% disagree when people said it was calculated, boring and slow. I think maybe I was watching a different movie. I was engaged the whole time and laughed out loud at several points. I especially appreciated the sisters' relationship, and their commitment to each other even when faced with impossible decisions. It's not always about getting the guy, and getting the guy isn't always the fairytale ending you wanted it to be. Realistic (as much as a sci fi/rom com can be). Lovable. Just an all around good movie. Plus I love Emma Caulfield from Buffy, which is an added bonus. ^_~
